  1. There were plenty of 2nd and 3rd tier characters to kill off, I dont see the need to kill off a major character at all. I only see that desire as a result of G.R.R. Martin's books and his obsessive need to kill off anyone that people began to care about. There was no need in my opinion to follow his example.
  2. If I had my say Id have left the top 7 characters alive at the end of the book, I get that the need to show self-sacrifice and that anyone can die . I blame the whole obsession with the "realism" of major characters being killed at the feet of G.R.R. Martin who made it fashionable to knock off major characters left and right. There were a copious number of 2nd and 3rd tier characters that you can knock off to show "realism" , which in fact Jordan/Sanderson did quite effectively. There was no need to kill off Egwene or any of the other 7 main characters for that matter , excepting Rand of course, but that's another whole can of worms to be discussed elsewhere in the forum. I know many people didn't like Egwene and were glad that she was killed but having Cadsuane as the new Amyrlin !? <shivers< What about the plan of Egwene's to absorb the massive number of potential Aes Sedai into the White Tower ? I can't imagine Cadsuane ever being willing to do such a thing she is just too wedded to how things were handled in the past, she most definitely is NOT a visionary . Also, Egwene had developed into a great leader and would have led the White Tower for conceivably a looong time .Anyway , that's one of the things id have changed in the series. Everyone's thoughts are encouraged and in fact hoped for. Let me know your thoughts on what i've said. Thanks.
  3. Encyclopaedia down?

    Yes I see . Whew , I was worried.
  4. Thanks for this reference . I am re-reading TDR now and wondered why Rahvin didn't recognize Mat.

  6. Encyclopaedia down?

    Hi , I use the Encyclopaedia quite a bit , especially when I am re-reading the series which I do every year in fact. The site has been down for last couple days , I hope it Hasn't been erased or anything , I find it extremely valuable! . Please let me know if you hear anything. Fingers crossed...
  7. Hi. I am new to Dragonmount and am excited to share ideas, questions and have fun with others who aren't just fans of WOT but FANATICAL ones :) I am unsure if this question has ever been asked before but here it goes. Does anyone else feel like the Seanchan got a cushy deal in the Last Battle ? It seemed to me in reading and re-reading "A Memory of Light" that they were barely involved in the battles and suffered the least number of casualties compared to Egwene et al. There were no POV accounts from Tylie or Karede. I read a couple scenes where their damane were active and a single time where their calvary was involved in helping Egwene's forces escape the Trollocs/Sharans but THAT's it. Next thing we hear is that Mat is pulling them out of battle as a tactic that supposedly helps the battle in some way that I can't see. Meanwhile Egwene, Lan, Elayne , and Rand's forces are beeing butchered !. Does anyone feel the same as me and if so what effects do you think the seemingly insignifigant losses that the Seanchan suffer will affect the world post Last Battle. Thanks for reading this to the end, I tend to ramble sometimes. I look forward to hearing from you.
